  • The 2013 Viper starts at $99,380.
  • The upscale Viper GTS is $122,390.
  • The Viper goes on sale in November.

Pricing for the all-new 2013 SRT Viper will start from $99,380 including destination when it goes on sale later this year. That's the latest from parent company Chrysler, who also announced that the upscale SRT Viper GTS will carry a significant premium over the standard model, offering a base price of $122,390 with shipping.

With a starting price of under $100,000, the SRT Viper significantly undercuts its major rival, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. Essentially an ultra-high performance version of the current Corvette, that model boasts a robust 638 horsepower and starts around $114,000 with destination. The SRT Viper also slightly eclipses the ZR1's power numbers, offering 640 hp from its monstrous 8.4-liter V10, and a whopping 620 lb-ft of torque to the ZR1's 604 lb-ft.

But while the SRT Viper may start under $100,000, it's unlikely that any shoppers will be able to get their hands on the wild sports car at that price. Although Chrysler has yet to announce option pricing for the Viper, shoppers will likely choose to upgrade the coupe's wheels, paint color or interior trim--all at an extra cost. Chrysler will also offer an 18-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system in the SRT Viper, along with upgraded brakes and a track package designed to improve performance.

Still other shoppers will likely opt for the pricier SRT Viper GTS, which includes a long list of upscale features as standard equipment. Such items include leather upholstery; a full leather dashboard and door panels; noise and vibration reduction; Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system; and dual-mode adjustable suspension, as well as the 18-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system that's optional on the standard SRT Viper. The Viper GTS is also expected to boast several unique options, including a premium package with an alcantara headliner and various exclusive paint colors.

The SRT Viper is the third all-new Viper since the exotic car's 1992 release. Like earlier models, the latest Viper is only available with a manual transmission, though there's much speculation that an automatic could be forthcoming to compete with like-priced sports cars including the Audi R8, Nissan GT-R and Porsche 911.

According to Chrysler, the 2013 SRT Viper begins production in November and goes on sale shortly thereafter. Among the only details still not revealed are the coupe's fuel economy numbers, and while its huge V10 isn't expected to win any awards for efficiency, even the Corvette ZR1 manages to return up to 21 mpg in highway driving.

What it means to you: The SRT Viper will undoubtedly offer a tremendous bang for the buck that's a rarity in the high-horsepower world of exotic sports cars.
